KINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC): A groin injury has put Pakistan seamer Hasan Ali in doubt for the opening Test of the three-match series against West Indies bowling which starts tomorrow. The 23-year-old, who is yet to make his Test debut, picked up the injury during last weekend’s three-day four game against the WICB President’s XI and is yet to recover. The Pakistan Cricket Board said the player would undergo rehabilitation in an attempt to return to full fitness quickly. “On clinical assessment, there is strain to one of his abductor muscles. He will undergo progressive rehabilitation to regain strength in the groin,” the PCB statement said. Ali was expected to be a shoo-in for the first Test after impressive performances in the preceding limited overs series. He was especially outstanding in the opening one-dayer with a five-wicket haul. The right-armer sent down 27 overs in the first innings of the tour game but did not bowl in the President’s XI second innings. He has taken 29 wickets in 16 one-dayers and 10 wickets in seven Twenty20 Internationals.
